I was asked to portray an overworked attorney for a photoshoot we were doing. This was for a pub I design for called Arkansas Times, they were writing an article that needed a photograph. It ended up being the cover story. I had no idea what I was doing.
I was asked to put together a tri-fold brochure for a local high school dance department. Here is what it turned out to look like. The best part about it…Harvey Edwards allowed me to use his photo on the front and didn’t ask for any money! He also requested some prints for his archives.
I did a little photo shoot of my brothers friend. He needed a headshot done really quick…you know the last minute hey can you do this for me requests. I took some shots in the hallway of my house since I had no time to set anything up. Here is an after and before shot of the one I thought brought out his personality most. I had the SNL look in my head when editing this.
So I finally made it to Hot Springs to catch a few films during the festival. Hot Spring has some of the best old architecture around here. The town is small but the warm feeling you get when you are there is huge. The festival was hosted by the Arlington hotel, this hotel was the hot spot for mobsters and celebrities. Al Capone even rented out the entire top floor when he came to town. After walking around town through bathhouse row, my brother and I hit up the promenade and then drove up the windy road to the overlook tower. Some of the shots look like we are flying through the trees but really we were only doing about 20 in his little Fiat 500. It was a great day of movies, food, and road trippin’ through nature. You’ll also see me cheesing in on of the photos, I was standing next to the smaller version of the poster I designed for the festival. I love how someone clumped the other posters together then put mine all by itself under the “what if” It was a good day and a good time.
We decided to make some good ol southern food. Turnip and mustard greens, black beans, rice, veggie bacon, boca burgers, green peppers and jalapeños from our garden, potatoes and corn…Sunday couldn’t be any better.
